CUSHION-EZE BACK This exclusive Armstrong backing consists of a foam layer applied to the felt 
backing of certain styles of Armstrong Corlon and Linoleum. This foam cushion actually supports the re- 
silient flooring on little bubbles of air and gives the feeling of walking on air. In addition to its underfoot 
comfort, the extra "give" of Cushion-Eze sharply reduces impact noise from walking and running and 
cuts maintenance to an absolute minimum because it prevents dirt from being ground into the floor. 
Cushion-Eze backed materials are installed direct to the subfloor (no lining felt required) and no special 
adhesives are necessary. The products with the Cushion-Eze Back are the subject of a patent application. 

HYDROCORD BACK A revolutionary new backing, which for the first time, permits the installation of 
sheet-type Armstrong Corlon on grade-level concrete subfloors. It is another Armstrong exclusive feature, 
made of materials which are not affected by the alkaline moisture always found in these subfloors. Hydro- 
cord back is easy to cut, has unusual flexibility and will not tear or break easily during installation. 

ARMOFELT BACKING An exclusive felt backing material made from fresh, unused cloth fibers. These 
fibers are processed with a clear resin saturant which welds them into a backing material of outstanding 
strength and flexibility. Armofelt backing is as durable as the floor itself. It cuts easily, will not "gum" knife 
blades and will not mark or discolor woodwork. 

ASPHALT SATURATED BACK This felt backing is made according to rigid Armstrong quality stand- 
ards. It consists of a combination of high quality fresh fibers saturated with asphalt to give it flexibility 
and added strength. The asphalt is sealed in with several coats of paint. 

EFFECTS OF SUNLIGHT The pigments used in the manufacture of Armstrong Floors are as fade re- 
sisting as modern science can make them. However, as in paint, fabrics, and other furnishings strong sun- 
light will have a bleaching effect on flooring, some colors more than others. 

FEDERAL SPECIFICATIONS All Armstrong resilient floors meet and, in most cases, easily exceed the 
property requirements established by Federal Specifications for various resilient floors. Copies of the perform- 
ance records of Armstrong Floors in relation to Federal Specifications may be obtained upon request. 

COLOR MATCHING Because of color printing limitations, we cannot guarantee exact duplication of the 
color values of actual goods in this pattern book. For accurate color matching, it is recommended that sam- 
ples of the actual goods be used.

JUST what is it that makes today's homes so much better to Hve in? 
Good design, for one thing , . . more open, more livable interiors. 

Good decorating ideas for another . . . richer colors, brighter more 
cheerful rooms. And practicality, too . . , easy to clean, long-lasting 
materials. Good design, lovely colorings, great practicality — these are 
the three most important features found in all Armstrong resilient floors. 

The floor, usually the largest single area of color in any interior, is 
the place to start a successful decorating scheme, whether in a new or 
old home. The wall-to-wall color and handsome designs of an Armstrong 
Floor can set a theme around which just the right decorative effect can 
be created in any interior. The design can be carried through from area 
to area, to create decorative unity — especially important in open- 
planned homes. And Armstrong Floors can give the proper setting to 
any style of furniture — whether traditional or modern — or harmonize 
these different styles of furnishings in one area. 

Floors used to be — and some types still are — the back-breaking 
part of housework. But no Armstrong Floor needs more than the mini- 
mum of care — there's always time and energy left to do other things. 

There are Armstrong Floors to match every decorative preference, 
to suit every pocketbook and to solve every flooring problem — in every 
room in the house. Each floor, too, can be individually custom styled.

come in! 



There's nothing like a friendly first impression. Even though this entrance 
haU is small, the mirror and the clever floor design give it a look of 
spaciousness. With the frequent coming-and-going of family and visitors, 
appearance and durability are very important factors in choosing a floor 
for an area like this. It must be easy to clean, too, so that tracked-in dirt 
can be wiped away easily and quickly — especially when the weather is bad. 



Floor is Armstrong Custom Corlon Tile, Style 460 and Style 462. 







time to relax 



The color scheme of the living room above gives it a casual and comfortable air. 
That's because the warm colorings of the floor are repeated in the upholstery, ceiling, 
and walls — a very smart decorative idea. The colorful sheet plastic floor makes a 
wonderful background for the area rug, adding to the richness of its appearance. 

Floor is Armstrong Terrazzo Corlon, Style 6209. 



At right, the soft natural tones of cork make a perfect setting for an interesting 
combination of Victorian and modern furniture, blending the old and the new in a 
pleasingly informal way. The quietness and comfort underfoot for which Armstrong 
Cork Tile is noted add still another restful note to this smart contemporary living area.

At left, a porch was enclosed to provide an attractive dining area off the living room. 
Then an almost seamless Armstrong Floor was installed throughout the two areas 
to unite them decoratively. Sliding doors separate the rooms when desired. There's 
no telltale sign of the remodeling job — and there's no doorsill to catch dirt. 

Floor is Armstrong Textelle Linoleum, Style 1551 .

In the modern home above, a wide fireplace is the focal point of the living room. 
Because of the growing trend to basementless houses, Armstrong has developed a 
variety of handsome resilient floors that can be installed directly over the concrete 
slab, bringing a whole new concept of floor beauty and luxury to homes of this kind.

dinnertime 



The dining room above is an elegant setting for a formal dinner. The smart black- 
and-white Armstrong Floor is a perfect background for soft candlelight and fine 
china. Its smooth, high-polished surface is easy to keep clean, too— spilled food 
can be quickly whisked away. The floor stays beautiful every day, for every meal. 

Floor is Armstrong Rubber Tile, Style 695, combined with Style 653, 

The oriental styled dining room at left called for a special sort of decorative back- 
ground. This Armstrong Floor with its quiet, subde terrazzo design in gently gradu- 
ated colors sets off the exquisite furnishings to perfection— and helps give the dining 
area the spacious, open feeling that is preferred in many of today's fine interiors.

time to retire 



Nowadays, lovely rooms needn't be expensive— as the bedroom above proves. It 
has one of the really low-cost Armstrong tile floors. These inexpensive floors come 
in a variety of design effects— and since the tiles are installed one at a time, different 
colors and stylings can be combined to create a custom look at little or no extra cost. 

Floor is Armstrong Asphalt Tile, Style C-971. 

The natural cork tones and rich texture of this Armstrong Floor make this lovely 
bedroom as luxurious as any room can be. It's a pleasure to step out of bed onto 
this warm cork floor. Its natural springiness makes cork tile magically quiet and 
comfortable underfoot, and its smooth surface simplifies and lightens housework.

Remember when bathrooms used to be all white and antiseptic looking? Now they're 
decorative and cheerful. The bathroom above shows how an attractive Armstrong 
Floor in a custom design can lift it out of the ordinary and give it decorative charm. 
Custom designed floors add a striking note to any room — often at little extra cost.

No problem about getting the children to take their baths in this bathroom, with its 
gay colorful Armstrong Floor. No need to scold them for splashing either. Water 
won't leave a trace on the handsome Armstrong Floor — it mops dry in a few seconds. 
And look what a few simple insets do to give this linoleum floor a rich custom look.

time for breakfast 



A breakfast nook in the kitchen is a wonderful convenience. Above, the eating area 
has been separated from the kitchen proper by a small wall partition and by the 
strip of tiles that contrast in design from the rest of the Armstrong Floor This is one 
of the several types of greaseproof, easy-to-clean plastic floors made by Armstrong. 

Floor is Armstrong Excelon Tile, Style 739, combined with 782. 

In the kitchen-dining area at right, the "outdoor look" has been brought inside The 
realistic flagstone effect of the Armstrong Floor creates a delightful feeling of spa- 
ciousness. Yet this floor is virtually seamless, without a crack or crevice where dirt 
and dust can hide. The smooth surface of Armstrong Linoleum is grease resistant, too!

time to cook 



With the right "mixer," all sorts of ingredients can be combined. In the modern 
kitchen above, the striking contrasts of the differently colored appliances are harmo- 
nized by the Armstrong Floor. The decorative tones of Armstrong Floors suggest 
many exciting new color schemes for modern kitchens in new or remodeled homes. 

Floor is Armstrong Terrazzo Corlon, Style 6202. 

In the kitchen at left, the newest appliances are set in a charming old-fashioned 
atmosphere. But there are no old-fashioned cleaning problems to worry about. 
Though it looks just like white brick, the Armstrong Linoleum Floor needs no 
scrubbing — the almost seamless surface is delightfully smooth and so easy to clean. 
Spilled things — even grease spatters — disappear with a quick wipe of a damp cloth.

The floor in the smart basement TV-room above is one of several types of Armstrong 
Floors specially perfected for the do-it-yourselfer. Offering a wide range of hand- 
some colors and interesting design effects, these resilient floors are easy for the 
home handyman to instaU with a few simple tools. They're economical in cost, too.

Multipurpose rooms are becoming more popular in American homes today. The 
kitchen-dining-family room on the left is a good example of what an Armstrong 
Floor can do for these busy rooms. The individual areas are set apart by the use 
of different floor colors, yet the over-all effect achieved is one of warmth and comfort.

Armstrong Linoleum is made 
in twelve distinct types. Each 
type is offered in a wide selec- 
tion of designs and colors to 
meet almost any decorative 
requirement. Patterns range 
from unadorned plain colors 
to style effects of elaborate 
detail. The rich colors last the 
life of the material as they 
are inlaid and go all the 
way through to the backing. 

For almost fifty years, Arm- 
strong Linoleum has been ac- 
cepted as the standard of 
quality among resilient floor- 
ing materials. Today, it is 
considered more than ever 
"The Modern Fashion in 
Floors" because of its high 
style and rich colorings. No 
other flooring material adapts 
itself so well to the design and 
color requirements of modern 
interior decoration. Any cus- 
tom floor design that can be 
drawn can be effectively re- 
produced in one of the styles 
of Armstrong Linoleum. 

In addition to its beauty and 
smart appearance, Armstrong 
Linoleum is a practical floor- 
ing, too. Its unusually smooth, 
virtually seamless surface is 
easy to maintain. Dirt does 
not easily adhere to its 
smooth surface. Spilled things, 
tracked-in dirt are quickly 
removed with a damp cloth. 
It's greaseproof, too. In ad- 
dition, Armstrong Linoleum 
is resilient and quiet under- 
foot and has long been noted 
for its exceptional wearing 
qualities and easy care.

Armstrong Plain Linoleum is distinguished by its 
smooth, even surface and deep uniform coloring. It 
is often used in areas where a striking single or con- 
trasting color effect is desired; but more frequently 
it is used for special single color insets, feature 
strips, or borders to accent other types of linoleum 
floors. It is made in the five Regular or "battleship" 
colors shown here and in seven Special colors shown 
on page 29 in the gauges shown. The Special colors 
are slightly higher in price than the Regular colors.

Armstrong Desk Top Linoleum 
is made for use on desks, tables, 
counters and other areas where 
a smooth, wear-resisting resil- 
ient work surface is needed. It 
has a satin-smooth finish, is 
lacquer-treated for easy main- 
tenance. Armstrong Desk Top 
Linoleum is made in five colors 
— three plain patterns and two 
Jaspe stylings. The pastel Jaspe 
colorings were especially de- 
veloped to combat eye fatigue. 
They lessen the light contrast 
between the desk top and paper 
work lying on it, and thus 
greatly reduce eyestrain. Arm- 
strong Desk Top Linoleum is 
manufactured in rolls 2 yards 
wide and in .080" thickness.

Armstrong Linoleum is one of the most practical of 
today's carefree modern flooring materials. It is so 
easy to clean and to keep clean. It does away with the 
old-fashioned "down-on-your-knees" way of cleaning, 
for its smooth, virtually seamless surface doesn't give 
dirt a chance to stick or hide. Spilled things and 
tracked-in dirt wipe up easily and quickly. And be- 
tween cleanings, many of the styles of Armstrong 
Linoleum actually keep dust and dirt from showing. 

Good examples of this practicality are the two styl- 
ings shown in Armstrong Suburban Linoleum. The 
bold graining of the marbleized and striated patterns 
helps camouflage footsteps, dirt, and dust making them 
ideal choices for just about any room in the home sub- 
ject to traffic. Armstrong Suburban Linoleum also 
offers decorating opportunities. Both styles are color- 
keyed — each marbleized coloring matches a striated 
coloring so that the two styles can be used together.

Versatility of color and design is another important 
consideration in the selection of a resilient flooring. 
No matter what color or style decoration theme, 
there's an Armstrong Linoleum Floor to add just the 
right finishing touch to the room. 

Armstrong Suburban Linoleum, one of the newest 
Armstrong Linoleum styles, offers both smart color- 
ing and styling at a very modest cost. It is made in 
two stylings — marbieized and a modern striated de- 
sign to provide just the right amount of accent color 
to the interior and its furnishings. Both stylings are 
color-keyed — each marbieized coloring matches a 
striated coloring so that the two styles can be used 
together for greater decorative effect. 

Armstrong Suburban Linoleum is available in Stand- 
ard Gauge only and meets F.H.A. specifications for 
standard gauge linoleum. Made in rolls 2 yards wide.

Custom-designed floors add to the beauty and eye- 
appeal of interiors of every type and style. The versa- 
tility and flexibility of Armstrong Linoleum offer 
many opportunities for unique design effects since it 
is possible to transcribe almost any design that can 
be drawn on paper to the floor. 

Armstrong Marbelle Linoleum is an ideal floor for 
custom-design work. It forms a perfect background 
for insets of ah types featuring other linoleum styles. 
The distinctive non-directional marbleization helps 
accent the custom design and gives the entire floor 
area the right amount of color to tie-in the room's 
furnishings. For striking allover floors, two or more 
colors of Armstrong MarbeUe Linoleum can be com- 
bined in one area. 

Armstrong Marbelle Linoleum is a very practical 
floor styling, too. Its swirl marbleizing tends to con- 
ceal tracked-in dust and dirt until the floor can be 
cleaned by sweeping or light mopping. It is grease- 
proof and offers exceptional long wearing qualities.

Color is all-important in today's decorating — furnish- 
ings, fabrics, walls, and even the floors work to- 
gether to give rooms unusual color, beauty, and 
distinction. In planning any interior, the floor should 
be given the first consideration since it's the largest 
single color area. The variety of styles offered in 
Armstrong Linoleum presents many interior decora- 
tion opportunities because it provides wall-to-wall 
color that sets the room's color scheme and holds it 
together decoratively. 

Armstrong Royelle Linoleum, one of the newer 
stylings, brings a bold dash of color and interest to 
room settings. Its sweeping veins of color spark many 
decorating ideas that can be carried out in the room's 
furnishings. 

It can be used effectively as it comes from the roll in 
either 2-yard or 2-foot widths, or custom designed to 
fit a particular idea or room design. The two-foot 
width developed for home installation makes it easy 
for the home mechanic to install beautiful floors.

Armstrong Spatter Linoleum is one of today's most 
popular floor stylings. The colorful, carefree Early 
American spatterdash design gives interiors a smart, 
yet informal atmosphere. In addition to its gay ap- 
pearance, the random multicolored dot eff'ect and 
richly colored backgrounds offer fresh approaches 
to interior decorating. 

As a practical feature, the irregular arrangement of 
the dots over the textured background helps hide 
tracked-in dirt and dust until cleaning time. Spatter 
Linoleum wears and wears, because the inlaid colors, 
dots included, go right through to the backing. 

Offering new luxury in underfoot comfort, six Spatter 
patterns, indicated with the figure 9 preceding the 
pattern number, are available with the new exclusive 
Armstrong Cushion-Eze Back. This exclusive back- 
ing consists of a foam layer backing which actually 
supports the linoleum floor on little air bubbles — 
giving the feeling of walking on air. The indentation 
resistance of Cushion-Eze backed linoleum is the 
same as Armofelt Back — 75 pounds per square inch.

Combining the rugged dura- 
bility of vinyl plastic with 
rich, clear colors, Armstrong 
Plastic Floors offer unlimited 
opportunities to create inte- 
riors of unusual beauty. 

Armstrong Plastic Floors are 
available in both sheet and 
tile form. The sheet material, 
Armstrong Corlon, is made 
in five distinct types and in a 
variety of designs. The tiles, 
Armstrong Excelon, Estate 
Corlon and Custom Corlon, 
are illustrated in the resilient 
tile section, pages 92 to 119. 

Each of these Armstrong 
Plastic Floors offers all the 
practical advantages found in 
vinyl plastics. Rich, fade- 
resisting color, exceptional 
long wear and easy mainte- 
nance, and the high resist- 
ance to the harmful action of 
oil, grease, alkali and house- 
hold chemicals are a few of 
the outstanding qualities. 

All types of sheet Corlon can 
be installed over suspended 
subfloors. Certain patterns of 
sheet Corlon are available 
with the exclusive Armstrong 
Hydrocord back which per- 
mits installation over grade- 
level subfloors. See page four 
for description of Hydrocord. 

Mosaic Corlon, another ex- 
clusive Armstrong sheet plas- 
tic styling, is available in 
Cushion-Eze foam back. This 
new Armstrong development, 
described on page four, offers 
the ultimate m underfoot 
comfort, quiet and luxury.

Armstrong Mosaic Corlon is a striking new plastic 
floor style. Its design is adapted from the artistic 
effects of handcrafted mosaic tile floors. Small 
squares of deep, rich color are scattered in profusion 
to form a dramatic floor design. Its decorative beauty 
is further enhanced by the delicate color variations 
within the squares. While informal in appearance, 
Mosaic Corlon is adaptable to many interiors. 

Armstrong Mosaic Corlon is manufactured by the 
molded process which inlays each square of color

Armstrong Resilient Tiles of- 
fer a variety of fashionable 
floors developed and designed 
to meet particular flooring re- 
quirements. Each type com- 
bines colorful beauty and ex- 
ceptional durability together 
with the characteristics 
needed to solve certain floor 
problems. Regardless of the 
characteristics of the individ- 
ual products each is manu- 
factured with the same high- 
quality standards which make 
them exceptional values. 

In addition to their beauty 
and service qualities, Arm- 
strong Resilient Tiles offer 
freedom of design and the 
advantages of custom design- 
ing at no added cost. Tile de- 
signs can be planned espe- 
cially for a particular room. 
Large designs in several col- 
orings may be used in large 
areas. Simple designs are 
more effective in small rooms. 
Transverse stripes are used 
to make a room appear wider. 
Stripes running the length of 
the room make it appear 
longer. A few design ideas 
and suggestions are shown in 
this section. 

The selection of an Arm- 
strong Resilient Tile Floor 
should depend on just what 
job the floor is to do. Cost, 
appearance, wear, mainte- 
nance, and floor area are all 
important considerations. The 
wide selection of types avail- 
able in these quality resilient 
tiles makes it possible to se- 
lect a flooring to suit any 
need or decorative preference.

suspended and grade-level floors but should not be used below grade. 
Where both grease and static electricity are problems, Armstrong

in 18"x24", 1/8" and 3/16" gauges, black only. 

Armstrong Conductive Asphalt Tile meets all the requirements listed 
in U. S. Government Safety Bulletins for powder plants. However, it

Armstrong Excelon Tile is a specially formulated 
plastic tile consisting of pure vinyl resins fortified with 
asbestos fibers. While it is priced considerably under 
the other Armstrong plastic tiles, Excelon Tile has 
many practical advantages. It can be installed over 
suspended, on-grade and below-grade concrete floors 
as well as suspended wood floors. It has high resis- 
tance to grease, oils, alkali and household chemicals. 
Excelon Tile is offered in five distinct stylings — 
Spatter, Standard (straight grain), Woodtone, Cork- 



style, and Designers Series. In each of these stylings 
the colors are selected to accent or harmonize with 
almost any decorative scheme. In addition to their 
rich brilliance, these colors are also fade resistant. 
Excelon Tile offers many opportunities for unusual 
floor treatments. Because all patterns are color har- 
monized, it is possible to combine stylings and colors 
for striking floor effects. Excelon Tile is ideal for 
home installation since the Service Gauge can be cut 
with scissors. Available in the gauges indicated.

CUSTOM VINYLCORK TILE 

Armstrong Custom Vinylcork Tile combines easy maintenance qualities 
of vinyl with the rich beauty of natural cork. The vinyl binders are fused 
to the cork particles under tremendous pressure. This molds them into a 
flooring material of unusual beauty and high resistance to wear and in- 
dentation. Armstrong Custom Vinylcork Tile features large cork parti- 
cles which give the floor an entirely new and dramatic appearance. A 
final vinyl coating is fused over the wearing surface and edges to give it 
additional beauty and long wear. In 9" x 9" beveled tile, 1/8" gauge.

Armstrong Rubber Tile is distinguished by its clear 
brilliance of color and the decorative beauty of its 
burl graining. It is especially appropriate for today's 
decorating trends which favor use of bright, yet softly 
toned, colors in richly styled interiors. 

Armstrong Rubber Tile is made of high-grade rub- 
ber, reinforced for greater durability and long wear. 
The colors go all the way through each tile and won't 
wear off or lose their luster. This tough resilient floor 
will take furniture loads up to 200 pounds per square 
inch without indenting. The natural resilience of 
high-quality rubber is retained in the manufacture 
of Armstrong Rubber Tile. Its cushioning action 
makes the floor comfortable to stand on and helps 
to muffle the sound of footsteps. 

Armstrong Rubber Tile can be installed on grade 
level with Armstrong No. S-104 Chemical-Set Water- 
proof Cement or No. S-235 On-Grade Cement. It 
can also be instafled below grade when Armstrong 
S-104 Chemical-Set Cement is used.

Armstrong Linotile is noted 
for its exceptional durability 
and ease of maintenance. It is 
specially processed for superior 
resistance to abrasion and in- 
dentation, and should not be 
confused with linoleum cut 
into blocks. The wearing sur- 
face goes all the way through 
to the back of the material.

Armstrong Suburban Linoleum Tile offers opportunities to create smart 
tile floors in areas where the quality of standard gauge linoleum is wanted 
at low cost. The colorings in the two styles shown are keyed together so 
that the same color scheme can be carried out in two different floor styl- 
ings. For unusual effects one or more colors in either or both styles can 
be combined in one floor area. It is recommended for suspended floors only. 

Suburban Linoleum Tfle meets F.H.A. specifications for standard gauge 
linoleum. An ideal flooring material for areas where low cost is important.

the simple checkerboard effect composed of alternating 
blocks to the more intricate designs. Illustrated here 
are a few of the many custom effects which can be 
worked out in any type of Armstrong Resilient Tile and 
in colors to suit individual tastes. Color percentages

types. Each type is designed 
to meet a specific service and 
decorative requirement. 

Armstrong Corkwall offers 
something exciting and dif- 
ferent in home and commer- 
cial decoration. Large par- 
ticles of cork are welded

colored resin to make up a 
luxurious and striking wall 
decoration. Ideal for almost

ularly recommended for inte- 
riors where a rich, dignified 
appearance is desired. 

Armstrong Vinyl Wall Tile is 
a distinctively new tile-type 
wall finish. It is a vinyl-asbes- 
tos composition that is fire 
retardant, impervious to mois- 
ture, alkaU, and most chemi- 
cals of the household type. 
Extremely durable, it is rec- 
ommended as a commercial 
and institutional wall finish. 

Armstrong Plastic Surfacing 
is another development of 
Armstrong research. It is a 
highly flexible, specially form- 
ulated vinyl plastic material 
in sheet form. It won't crack 
even when bent around a 
pencil. It is stain, grease, and 
wear resistant. It also can be 
used for counter tops. 

Armstrong Budget Wall Cov- 
ering is a low-cost enamel 
surfaced wall finish. Available 
in a variety of colors and de- 
signs, it offers a decorative 
and serviceable wall surface 
where low cost is a factor.

Armstrong Vinyl Wall Tile is a completely new type 
of wall finish developed especially for commercial and 
institutional interiors. It is fire retardant and ideally 
suited for use in schools, hospitals, public buildings, 
and other areas where a decoratively smart, fire-re- 
sisting wall finish is desired. It is made of vinyl plastic 
and asbestos, two materials noted for their excep- 
tional durability. Vinyl Wall Tile's fire-retardant prop- 
erties are listed on the Underwriters' Laboratories, 
Incorporated, label on each carton. 



Armstrong Vinyl Wall Tile is offered in the nine 
colors shown on this page. These colors have been 
selected to complement one another so that two or 
more colors can be used effectively in any one or 
group of related wall areas. Vinyl Wall Tile has a 
tough plastic surface that does not easily stain, scuff, 
scratch, or show signs of hard usage. It requires 
little maintenance, just an occasional light cleaning. 
Vinyl Wall Tile is made in 9" x 9" tile size only. Its 
smooth cut edges fit tightly eliminating mortar lines.

Quaker's low cost, coupled 
with the high-quality stand- 
ards of Armstrong manufac- 
ture, makes Quaker an out- 
standing floor covering value 
for beautiful styling, long 
service, and easy care. Each 
pattern is styled to meet 
future as well as present dec- 
orating needs by the same 
artist-decorators who design 
all Armstrong Floors. 

Long wear is built into 
Quaker. Its extra tough felt- 
base is reinforced with sev- 
eral layers of saturants and 
special coatings to make it 
still tougher. Its exclusive 
colorful K-99 wearing surface 
is made for long service, too. 
K-99 is the name given to a 
special enamel floor covering 
finish developed by Arm- 
strong. It ofl'ers 50% more 
wear and is 100% more alka- 
line resistant than ordinary 
floor covering enamels. Its 
special ingredients make 
Quaker colors brighter and 
more fade resistant than ever. 

Quaker is easy to clean and 
to keep clean. K-99's mirror- 
smooth surface does not hold 
tracked-in dirt. A damp mop- 
ping or sweeping quickly re- 
moves dirt and restores its 
bright appearance. While 
K-99 finish resists the harm- 
ful action of harsh soaps, 
these cleaning agents are not 
needed to keep Quaker clean. 
A cloth dampened with warm 
water easily removes even 
the most stubborn dirt.

Armstrong Counter Tops are 
available in two types — a 
rigid, high-pressure laminate 
and a flexible vinyl sheet 
plastic. Both types are easily 
handled and can be installed 
by either the home or profes- 
sional mechanic. 

The high-pressure laminate, 
Armstrong Corlex, is a deco- 
rative and extremely durable 
rigid plastic fmish for sink 
and counter tops of all kinds 
and custom-built furniture. 
Its beauty of color and design 
not only presents many inter- 
esting decorating opportuni- 
ties, but also lasts for years. 
It resists heat, stains, and 
scratches and requires little 
care or maintenance. 

Armstrong Plastic Surfacing 
is a vinyl plastic material in 
roll form. It makes an ideal 
finish for sink and counter 
tops and other areas where a 
flexible plastic surface is de- 
sired. It has a smart textured 
design that fits into the mod- 
ern decorating trend toward 
more colorful interiors. Its 
smooth surface is stain re- 
sistant and is not easily 
harmed by grease, alkali, and 
household chemicals. 

Armstrong Plastic Surfacing 
has the new exclusive Hydro- 
cord backing which is com- 
pletely resistant to the harm- 
ful effects of water. Both the 
vinyl surface and the Hydro- 
cord Back are not harmed by 
water, dampness, or mold.

COUNTER TOPS

a counter-top and wall surfacing. Extremely flexible, it can be easily installed over and around

The Armstrong Sundry Line 
includes a variety of mate- 
rials and tools developed es- 
pecially for the installation 
and maintenance of Arm- 
strong resilient floors and 
wall coverings. Years of ex- 
perience, plus continuous 
laboratory and field research, 
have aided in their develop- 
ment. Each item has been 
specifically formulated for use 
with one or more of the vari- 
ous Armstrong Floor, Wall, 
and Counter-Top Products 
and their use is essential for 
best installation and mainte- 
nance performance. 

Frequently under varying 
conditions, the same resilient 
floor or wall may require an 
entirely different adhesive or 
installation procedure. The 
use of the right Armstrong 
Installation Sundry with each 
Armstrong product could be 
considered job insurance. It 
helps eliminate after-installa- 
tion service problems, and at 
the same time, it assures both 
the merchant and the cus- 
tomer that all the materials 
used in the installation will 
measure up to the high stand- 
ard of quality of the Arm- 
strong Line. It also concen- 
trates in one company the 
responsibility for all the prod- 
ucts used in the installation. 

A brief description of each 
sundry item and its uses are 
given in the following pages.
